Simple implementation of a bullethell game. Various pickups which improve movement speed, fire rate, special bombs, multifire, and orbs. Comes with a mini boss and end of game boss. Game takes a minute or two to play through with a record of the fastest time you've won.

Glad for the 2-player mode, thanks.

Good game, sad when I beat it.

Any chance on a hard-mode? Or a loop, beat the boss, and loop with weapons reset, and fewer powerups.

I didn't really get the warp ability, but I haven't played a SHMUP with that before, so wasn't sure how to strategize with it.

@mhungerford, I do have plans for a longer version of the game which will hopefully be a bit more balanced overall. If you haven't already, if you bring up the menu there are difficulty levels you can set there. Warp ability is hugely situational and may not shine as much in the current setup.

And I wouldn't worry about not having played a SHMUP before, I haven't written one before this XD It was an attempt to cram a full SHMUP experience into a minute or two of gameplay.
